with the president of the united states. but a lot of americans as you know, and you look at american public opinion polls, they're concerned that they want the u.s. out of afghanistan, about 70% say it's time for the u.s. to come home, the u.s. is spending to keep 90,000 troops, $2 billion a week in afghanistan, $100 billion a year. why is this money well spent? >> we have already agreed on a process of transition to afghan authority whereby afghanistan will be looking after itself and after its security and the defense of the country almost entirely by 2014, and that's also the time that the american forces and other forces will withdraw from afghanistan. that transition and the eventual withdrawal in 2014 of the u.s. forces and other nato forces from afghanistan is good for afghanistan and good for our allied countries. today we discussed that. we have finalized plans. so 2014 will be a year in which the united states will not be spending as much money in afghanistan as it is spending today. it will save money and we will be providing security ourselves. >> but for another two and a half years un
